Wilkes-Barre/Scranton's Olympian is back.

Christian Thomas returned to the team this week after winning bronze with Canada in PyeongChang, something he called an "unbelievable experience".

Thomas said attending the opening ceremonies made it really click how incredible it was to be a part of everything.

"When all of the Canadian athletes get together, they call out 'Canada', you walk out on the floor, and it almost gives you goosebumps," he said.

Thomas recorded one goal in the tournament, the game-winner against South Korea:
